Wine Gift Ideas From Independent Wine
Lo Sparviere Franciacorta DOCG Brut Millesimato 2014
A delightful sparkling wine made from 100% Chardonnay, using grapes all from the same vintage.
The Lo Sparviere vineyard is located near Provaglio d’Iseo, which is about 1 km south of Lake Iseo in Lombardy. Only 19 villages are allowed to produce wines labelled “Franciacorta”.
The wine undergoes a second fermentation in bottle, similar to the traditional method used to make Champagne.
But, because of the warm growing environment south of Lake Iseo, the Chardonnay grapes in Franciacorta reach ripeness levels which require a much lower level of dosage (added sugar).
Allowing Franciacorta’s winemakers to produce dry sparkling wines with a natural balance of alcohol, sweetness and acidity.
Tasting Notes – flavours of lemon zest and yellow flowers. It has an undertone of lemon whipped cream and pear drop candy with baked golden apple, giving a long finish.
And with plenty of acidity it will last years in the bottle. So this is a gift to drink, or store – your choice!

Feudi di Guagnano Pietrafinita | Primitivo di Manduria DOC 2019
An old-vine passito Primitivo wine with a rich and concentrated taste of blackberry and liquorice.
Pietrafinita is only produced during the best years and has an outstanding depth of flavour.
The grapes from Pietrafinita come from old vines up to 55-60 years old and are harvested by hand. The grapes are then dried for around a month in wooden crates which creates a concentrated flavour. A process known as ‘appasimento‘
Due to this long and expensive process with the grapes losing so much volume, they produce less wine, so are only used to make premium wines. Once pressed and fermented for two weeks, the wine is then aged in French oak barriques for a year, before being bottled and allowed to settle for 6 months to fully develop the flavours.
Tasting Notes – The wine has a bold aroma of blackcurrant, blackberry and liquorice with a savoury balsamic undertone. It has a complex palette of dried raisins, prunes and dates with a hint of coconut and cinnamon.

Demarie Barbaresco DOCG 2016
An elegant Barbaresco wine with flavours of cranberry, blueberry, violets and cherry pie. It’s still young wine with grippy tannins
This award-winning Barbaresco has spent two years ageing in oak, but all the nuanced aromas of Nebbiolo are still bright and fresh.
Tasting Notes – Vivid aromas of cranberry, blueberry and violet flower with an underpinning of dark chocolate.
